Meet the Interns: Dalton Good

June 21, 2018

I spent many summers traveling north from Oklahoma to work on my uncle’s farm in Montezuma, Kansas. Whether cleaning out sprinkler nozzles, sitting in the cab of a combine or working cattle, there was never a shortage of things to do or lessons to be learned.
Dalton-Group_edited.jpgMy name is Dalton Good, I am the grain merchandising intern for Team Marketing Alliance this summer. My expectations for this summer continue to get blown out of the water. The experiences I have had are significantly better than I could have ever hoped for. Todd Schultz is my mentor and is based out of the Sumner County location. Todd works at one of, if not the top facility, in the state of Kansas. It is incredible to see firsthand some of the most modern technology in today’s grain elevators.    
I have always had a passion for agriculture. Growing up in Mustang, Oklahoma, I was president of my FFA chapter in high school. I raised show pigs where I developed and expanded my knowledge of the agricultural industry. As I continued to gain more experiences in agriculture, I knew I would attend Oklahoma State University. Going into my senior year, my college career is almost over as I finish my studies majoring in animal science with a minor in agricultural economics.
While at Oklahoma State, I have been involved on campus. I am a member of the Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity, as well as Colligate Farm Bureau, Colligate Cattlemen’s Club, Aggie-X and the Heart of a Champion Special Needs Livestock Show. On top of my campus involvement I have been actively involved in philanthropy. At graduation in May, I will receive a graduation cord for my coursework of 400 plus philanthropy credit hours while in college.
During my summer experience, I look forward to learning more about commodities and futures contracts. The ability to lock in profit when the opportunity presents itself is something that TMA stands by. I plan to soak up as much information as possible to expand my knowledge and continue my education of the agricultural industry outside of school.
